Trivia

The fight scenes were choreographed by the same choreographer that helped on Ong-Bak: The Thai Warrior (2003) and The Protector (2005). See more »

Goofs

Before the last battle, Blackbeard orders his "new" flag raised, and a shot is shown of the historical Blackbeard's standard: a demon stabbing a heart with a spear. However, this is the only shot of the flag in the film - during subsequent long-shots of the ship, the skull and crossed swords flag that was previously used is clearly seen flying. See more »

Quotes

Israel Hands: Hey! Show yourself!
Lt. Robert Maynard: Is there a problem gentlemen?
Snake Leavitt: You've been watchin' things you aint got no business watchin'!
Lt. Robert Maynard: Well, I can assure you there is only one thing I've been watching and that's a bottle of gin. Would you be so kind as to spare me a drink?
Israel Hands: He's empty. You'd best be coming with us then.

Tripe
24 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Unbelievable. A comic book version of Blackbeard's story. Don't waste your money renting this insipid, historically-inaccurate tripe. The setting, which should have been North Carolina and Virginia, is some mythical Caribbean colony. The actors are wasted on a script filled with stock heroes and villains. Nothing is even faintly true to the facts, except for the historic character names. The whole thing reminded me me of a Classic's Illustrated version of a greater work. The only audience this will appeal to is the kiddies, since it's done on their level anyway. Production values are generally good, but some of the night scenes are murky. Unfortunately, good tech credits can't even begin to redeem this cynical joke. If you are looking for an adult viewing experience I'd advise you to look elsewhere.
